Cheap Shoulders

"I'm a steamroller baby,
I'm going to roll right over you..."

Driving a roller is mind numbingly boring.
Strangely it can also be quite dangerous.

The road shoulders in NZ are increasingly being constucted on quite steep angles in a bid to save metal and money.
Compacting them can then be a bit dodgy.
A steel roller has very little grip or traction, and is an accident waiting to happen.

Compaction is a science in itself, if the road shoulders can't be compacted properly, the whole job is at risk in winter rains.

It pisses us off when we see steep shoulders and a cheap job.
